1. Front Door to Maryland History Marker
Inscription. Experience Salubria is a curated collective of historic facts that establishes Southern Prince Georgeís County as the front door to Marylandís epic heritage. The collective within the Tanger Outlets National Harbor consists of four destination points: two commemorative bronze plaques; the Salubria Memorial Garden, and; the Potomac River Heritage Visitors Center. Each point offers a unique way to engage, reflect, and celebrate the history and diverse cultures in Prince Georgeís County.

The research, design elements, and visual markers throughout the collective guide the visitor from pre-Civil War footprints to contemporary realities. The plantings in the Memorial Garden provide a landscape that offers visitors a glimpse of early horticultural innovation. The Heritage Visitors Center presents guided discoveries including archaeological finds. These may spark spirited conversation that can be continued in other historic places along Marylandís Southern Potomac shores.
